I’ve been participating in this project for a couple of weeks now – sending/receiving poems via a chain of people to brighten up the day.
Here’s one home-grown effort I saw:
Being in lockdown is no fun at all
In fact it’s a pain in the butt,
People will try all sorts of things,
To try and get out of the rut.
A Mate of mine who lives in New York,
Wants me to write down a verse,
And send it to someone that I’ve never met,
Which could be the start of a curse.
If you wrote out a list of Poets,
I’d never be on that list,
So I’ll put away my pen and paper,
And go and get myself pissed.
